MORMON GIRL INCOGNITO
by Kari Iroz

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
LOVED! LOVED! LOVED! IT!
Jack and Damon are at it again-- the completely incomprehensible situations that Jack gets herself into will keep you reading and reading and reading-- SO GOOD!!! Can Damon keep her safe???
This is a perfect romantic suspense! 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hilarious heroine Jacklyn Wyatt is back—this time in a dicey Vegas adventure! Jacklyn “Jack” Wyatt is just your average Mormon girl—other than her brief stint with the FBI, her subsequent brush with death, and her dreamy boyfriend, Special Agent Damon Wade.

But in the eight months since she helped save a kidnapping victim, Jack’s life has returned to its mostly stagnant state. She’s still trapped in a dead-end job, and even her relationship seems to be stuck in a rut. These days, adventures are few and far between. So when Damon heads to Las Vegas on assignment, Jack sees the perfect opportunity to surprise her boyfriend and rekindle the spark in their relationship.

But the surprise is on her: she has just landed herself in the middle of a high-stakes operation involving Russian criminals. Unwittingly drawn undercover once more, Jack is all too aware that the survival of Damon and his associates depends on the success of her charade.

In the unfamiliar world of luxurious limos, exclusive nightclubs, and gambling, Jack must convince the high-rolling hustlers that she is a terrifying international arms dealer.

If only she knew anything about poker. Or guns . .

Beauty and the Clockwork Beast

0 comments
I have heard SO MANY good reviews of this book that when I found out I could get it for FREE with Bookshelf Plus-- both my daughter and I downloaded it :)

When Lucy Pickett arrives at Blackwell Manor to tend to her ailing cousin, Kate, she finds more than she bargained for. A restless ghost roams the hallways, werewolves have been reported in the area, and vampires lurk across the Scottish border.

Lord Miles himself is clearly hiding a secret. He is brash and inhospitable and does not take kindly to visitors—even one as smart and attractive as Miss Pickett. He is unsettled by the mysterious deaths of his new wife, Clara, and his sister, Marie. Could Miles himself be to blame for the deaths?

Working together, Miles and Lucy attempt to restore peace to Blackwell Manor. But can Lucy solve the mystery of Miles? Can she love the man—beast and all?

See what people are saying about it--
"This book is suspenseful, filled with mystery, but also has the proper romance aspect which I always love. I love the Victoria Era books and this one has the steampunk twist which adds a whole new dimension!" --Alexis

"From the first page to the last, I was completely swept away by this novel. Steampunk was new to me, and I found it quite imaginative and fun. The supernatural twist mixed with a good mystery made for an enthralling read." --Margaret

"Highly enjoyable! This was my first steampunk read and the mixture of technology and Victorian elements was fun. I don't usually seek out romances but this book read more as a mystery with romantic elements, which was more to my taste." --M.

Fatherhood, Football, and Turning Forty

Available FREE with Bookshelf Plus

FATHERHOOD, FOOTBALL,
AND TURNING FORTY
by Chris Crowe

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What a FUN BOOK!
Filled with "confessions of a middle-aged Mormon male" this book will make you smile, laugh, and ponder where you are at in your own life. 
I love personal stories like these--
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Life as a married Mormon male is no picnic. At first you just had to worry about yourself and your wife. Pretty soon you add a baby, and then another, and another; add to that your church and work responsibilities, and who has time to even breathe?

But, as author Chris Crowe points out, no life is more rewarding. With honesty and humor he recounts some of the events and feelings experience by a contemporary Mormon father. For example, he explains a father’s need for infinite patience—and amateur plumbing skills—in “The Little Plumbers.” “Feeling Small” takes a look at the stunted ego that can result from such things as being “genealogically challenged” in a church full of pioneer stock. “The Countdown” contains the musing of a man slipping into middle age. And in “LaVell and Me” the author relates the real story behind BYU’s success in football.

Lively and down to earth, this book has something for everyone who is familiar with the pleasures (and frustrations) of fatherhood, football, and turning forty.

This movie is INCREDIBLE!
A story of a young girl's battle--yet filled with hope and love.

Some of our favorite scenes:
Multiple scenes of Kennedy giving hugs
Kennedy driving
Kennedy waiting up for her sister
The Church Dance -- included below
Her dad taking her for rides in his big truck
Where she is asked if she has any challenges
Hot boys-- especially Jaden -- Jaden -- Jaden
Kennedy cheerleading
Final farewell-- especially with the first 3 girls
And we could go on and on!

We were honored to have director and writer T.C. Christensen talk to us after the movie.

Also Kennedy's real father and brother were there to answer questions. How tremendous to have them share their story with us.

Someone said that this movie was up against the blockbuster movie Wonder Woman-- but we quickly all agreed that Kennedy is the REAL wonder woman.

Her story is so inspiring!
Go see the movie! Or get the DVD with it becomes available!

Kennedy still has so much to give with her story.

Based on a true story. Kennedy Hansen is a funny, loving child but inexplicably she begins to fall. It takes years for the diagnosis...Juvenile Batten Disease, an extremely rare, terrible and terminal prognosis. There is no cure for Batten Disease and after living only sixteen years, Kennedy leaves behind a great legacy of love and friendship. But her story doesn't end at her death, that's when the miracles really begin.

LOVE ON POINTE
by Tiffany Odekirk

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I adored this book!!! Such a fun story!!!
 Read the author's note below for some great insight.

I loved the characters and how they developed throughout the pages. I loved their struggles and their passions and their depth.

GREAT. GREAT. GREAT. WRITING!
Do not miss out on this one!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Rhys Solario has a secret—one he plans to keep: he's a non-Mormon attending Brigham Young University. With only two semesters left before graduation, he just wants to keep flying under the radar. Then he meets Emmy in a Book of Mormon class, and for the first time, the idea of keeping to himself doesn't sound so appealing.

Emmy Jennings feels confident only when she's dancing ballet. With every plié and chassé, all her worries fade away. But when she fails to earn a coveted solo, her confidence on the dance floor disintegrates, and the future she's worked so hard to earn stands in jeopardy.

Assigned to be study partners, both Rhys and Emmy face initial anxieties regarding who they really are. But slowly, their tentative friendship evolves into something more. Yet even as love deepens, the pair is faced with a disheartening truth: Rhys can't take Emmy to the temple, and the promise of eternity is not something Emmy's willing to give up. With everything on the line, the couple must decide if they're prepared to reshape their hearts—and their lives—for the promise of forever.

Author' Note
"A ballerina, a boy, and a secret that could tear them apart. 
The idea for this novel started with a simple question: What would it be like for a non-Mormon guy attending BYU? As soon as I asked myself this question, I couldn't help asking myself a million more: Would he tell people he wasn't Mormon? Would he date? What if he fall in love? Though I originally began telling this story only through Emmy's eyes, I knew right away that Rhys had a story to share as well, so I choose to tell this story in alternating first person points of view. There are always two sides to every love story after all! I hope you will love this story as much as I loved writing it."

HOW TO SURVIVE YOUR 
GREATEST BLESSINGS
by Emily Watts

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Every woman needs to hear this talk!
Funny! Fun! Fantastic!
Lots of humor, yet lots of soul-reaching teaching.
This talk will help you learn how to be content 
with where you are at--
So needed in today's world!!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ever notice that our greatest blessings and our hardest trials often seem to come wrapped up in the same package?

If you have a job, or children, or a spouse, or a body, you probably understand the idea of a "mixed blessing." Popular speaker and author Emily Watts observes, "It’s as if every mortal experience is a coin with two sides. If you want to be happy, learn to see the blessing side of the coin." She goes on to give many examples, framed by her own hilarious, real-life stories, illustrating how to shed our pride, rejoice in the blessings we’ve been given, and trust that the Lord knows what he is doing even when we can’t see what He has in mind for us.

Making the Sabbath a Delight

Available FREE with Bookshelf Plus

MAKING THE SABBATH A DELIGHT
by Brent L. Top and Wendy C. Top

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What an amazingly wonderful book!
So many insights I have never thought about before-- 
Here is a partial list of what I gained:
  • If you are not finding delight in the Sabbath then you are doing it wrong.
  • The Sabbath is similar to a once-a-week date night between spouses.
  • The Jews have kept the Sabbath and the Sabbath has kept the Jews.
  • When you treat the Sabbath like every other day-- you become like every other people.
  • Keeping the Sabbath Day holy keeps us holy.
  • Do we sometimes suffer from Spiritual ADD?
  • It's not about WHAT we do on the Sabbath, but WHY we do what we do--attitude.
  • The Sabbath is not for us, it is for the Lord.
This subject has been a topic of discussion for many of us for some time now. This book will bring greater understanding and hopefully a stronger desire to truly make our Sabbath Day a delight.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Imagine the blessings awaiting us as individuals, families, communities, and the Church as we open our eyes to the true grandeur of the Sabbath of our Lord. As we enrich our Sabbath worship and devotion, we fully embrace the joyous gift and opportunity of a day to focus on being as much like God as possible.

As Latter-day Saints, we dedicate one day a week to the Lord. The question is, how are we spending that sacred time? If observance of the Lord's day feels more like an obligation than a celebration, rediscover the true spirit of the Sabbath in Making the Sabbath a Delight. This inspiring volume invites readers to explore the biblical context and symbolism of Sabbath worship as well as its modern application in today's fast-paced world. The refreshing study of principles and patterns for Sabbath observance will inspire faithful followers of the Lord to more fully delight in Sabbath worship and more joyfully celebrate His day.

ROMANCING DAPHNE
by Sarah M. Eden

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
LOVED. LOVED. LOVED. this book!!!
Daphne will capture your heart-- she is shy and tender and has developed a unique talent. And just wait until you read about James-- have you ever had to live in someone else's shadow??? Such GREAT writing! I adored how this story came about and the twists in the plot that were cleverly written!

It was also fun to read about Adam and Persephone again :)
You can find their story in Seeking Persephone-- But you can read this book without having to read that book first, although I highly recommend you get both books as they are FABULOUS!!! 

Sarah M. Eden's books are FUN! FANTASTIC! FAVORITES! 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As her first London Season looms before her, the thought of the impending social whirl fills Daphne Lancaster's timid heart with dread. She hasn't her sisters' beauty nor their talent for conversing easily. Even her family's enviable connections may not be enough to prevent disaster.

But Daphne's misery turns to surprised delight when the first even of her Season brings an unexpected visitor to her door—James Tilburn, whose tender kindness stole her heart in her youth. When the handsome young gentleman expresses his desire to court her, Daphne is elated. Their feelings for each other quickly grow, and it appears that, much to Daphne's disbelief, her happily ever after is within reach.

Yet nothing is as it seems. The couple finds themselves caught in a tangled web of greed and deceit, leaving James and Daphne to determine whether they are willing to risk everything for true love.

SEEKING PERSEPHONE
by Sarah M. Eden

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is such a GREAT BOOK!!!
I loved the plot of a gruff man and the woman who could see beyond it-- Such fun scenes!

I am grateful that I did not live in an era where I was married off for money or to unite two kingdoms-- But, oh how I love reading about it!!! Love how Persephone and Adam come together--

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS ONE!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When Persephone Lancaster receives a marriage proposal from the ill-tempered Duke of Kielder, she refuses — and then reconsiders. The obscene sum of money he’s offering Persephone would save her family from ruin. With her characteristic optimism, she travels to the far reaches of Northumberland to wed a greatly feared stranger.

Lodged deep in a thick forest infested with wild dogs, the Duke’s castle is as cold and forbidding as the Duke himself, a man with terrible scars on his body and his soul. But the Duke’s steely determination to protect his heart at all costs is challenged by his growing attachment to his lovely and gentle bride. With caring persistence, Persephone attempts to pierce the Duke’s armor and reach the man beneath. Yet he cannot tolerate such exposure, and his repeated rejections take their toll. But when grave danger arises, the Duke realizes he must face the risk of revealing his true feelings or lose the woman he cannot live without.

WINDS OF CHANGE
by Jean Holbrook Mathews 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I always like to read about amazing people who do amazing things, like cross land and sea for something they believe in. I often wonder if I could have done it like they did. 

This book really brought out that getting to the Salt Lake Valley wasn't the end of their troubles and trials--I have never really thought about that--

But, along with the trials also comes many blessings when one does those things they believe to be right.

Very well written! I highly suggest this book!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The year is 1854, and change is in the air throughout India. Within the walls of her grand home in Calcutta, Sarah McCune anxiously awaits the future. After eighteen months at war, her husband, a sergeant in the Bengal Army of the East India Company, has made an extraordinary proposal: leave all the comforts of their life in Asia for an unknown future in America. As recent converts to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Sarah and her husband are drawn to the promise of Zion. So, despite their fears regarding the dangerous voyage before them, they and their four children embark on a journey of faith that will test the limits of their conviction and define generations to come. This breathtaking saga, based on the historical journals of one Latter-day Saint family, invites readers to experience the sacrifices and perils of these early pioneers as they faithfully seek a land of promise.

Love, Kennedy

0 comments

If you loved the movies 
17 MIRACLES, 
EPHRAIM’S RESCUE 
and THE COKEVILLE MIRACLE, 
from T.C. Christensen 
you are in for a treat with his upcoming release 
LOVE, KENNEDY
- in theaters throughout Utah on Friday, June 2 -

Film Synopsis:
LOVE, KENNEDY tells the inspirational true story of Kennedy Hansen, a funny, loving young woman whose health suddenly begins to fail. It takes years to find the cause – Juvenile Batten Disease – an extremely rare, horrible and inevitably terminal diagnosis. After living only 16 short years, Kennedy leaves behind an incredible legacy of love and friendship. But her story doesn’t end with her passing, it’s only then the true miracles really begin.



Message from Jason Hansen (Kennedy’s dad)


In life, we all have a story. Some stories are happy, some are sad, some are long and some are short. It is human nature to treat our life as a story book full of different chapters that portray our lives. Our family’s story began with a dream. A dream that was given to me that all now makes sense. In that dream, I was shown my family, my story and what was to come. Unfortunately, part of our dream and a chapter in our life was losing our beloved Kennedy. Yet, through losing her, we also gained her. We gained her through so much more of understanding that when hard things come, you can be positive, you can be loving, understanding and provide an array of love to all of those around you. Those hard things have proven to allow us to grow as a family and share. Share the deepest parts of our souls and the hardest parts of our minds and hearts.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Kennedy’s story could not just be shared by anyone, it needed to be shared by someone who would not be afraid to tell the truth about her life. What really happened throughout her life and what she really believed. T.C. Christensen is that someone. He took to heart the rawness, reality and true life story of Kennedy, our family and the experiences that we endured. He spent time reading, pondering, questioning and asking. He did nothing hasty, yet everything perfectly. He wanted to make sure, that if he was going to tell her story, that the most important parts were shared. And guess what? He did that!



Message from T.C. Christensen

I'm drawn to faith-based true stories. The life of Kennedy Hansen touched me when I was first introduced to her story. This beautiful young woman trusted God’s plan even when those around her questioned why Kennedy had to endure such trails. Before writing the script, I had the opportunity to read through hundreds of journal entries, with the turning of each page, I began to understand her personality. She was kind, compassionate, funny, teased, loved cheerleading, had faith, adored boys (especially Jaden), uplifted those around her, and had great family support including a funny little brother. We had the honor of filming Love, Kennedy in the Hansen’s home, the high school Kennedy attended, and other unique locations specific to her life. I hope when you see the movie that you are inspired by the warmth and love of Kennedy Hansen’s life.

When you see the film, you will see our Kennedy and know the kind of person she was. She loved boys (especially Jaden). She loved her family. All of us, just not one or two of us. The movie shows the special relationship that she has with each one of her family members. She loved cheerleading and music and always dreamed of being normal. And lastly, she loved her Savior and Heavenly Father with perfect faith which in turn allowed her to love EVERYONE whom she met.

Homer and Morgan Winegar believe they may have finally found happiness in the quiet college town in which they have settled. Perhaps now in their new life together with Morgan’s nine-year-old son, they can each leave a troubled past behind.

But when Morgan’s psychology students begin exhibiting bizarre behavior, the couple quickly becomes entangled in an experiment headed for catastrophe. Someone is illegally administering a mind-altering drug to unwitting students. With the potential for millions of dollars in profits on the line, the pharmaceutical designers are more than willing to set aside morals to test the limits of the subconscious and mind control.

As the growing ranks of test subjects fulfill increasingly disturbing commands, Homer and Morgan race to discover who’s pulling the strings — and how they are doing it. But as the final stages of research point to a deadly calamity, events from the past threaten to shatter the couple’s fragile trust — just as they need it most. Will they be able to overcome the forces that threaten to pull them apart and find a way to stop the impending tragedy?

Mother Nature: the world’s most innovative KILLER . . . Deep in the jungles of Venezuela, mycologist Dr. Julia Fatheringham is engrossed in her study of native fungi. But what begins as a standard research trip quickly spirals into chaos when her associate’s erratic behavior results in his horrifying death. Soon, Julia makes a startling discovery: her partner was contaminated by an organism found only in insects. It alters the victim’s mind in alarming ways, with an invariably deadly outcome. Julia is baffled by her discovery—this organism has never appeared in humans. It shouldn’t be possible. There is only one terrifying conclusion: the infection has jumped species.

Now, in this remote corner of the world, a contagion of unparalleled horror rests in Julia’s hands. But even as she works to contain the organism that could spell devastation of apocalyptic proportions, there are others with a different agenda. They’ve learned of her discovery and will go to any lengths to acquire a sample—there is good money to be had in eco-terrorism. Armed only with her strength of mind and what courage she can gather, Julia prepares to battle the devastating scourge—and the terrorists determined to unleash it upon humanity.

Do No Harm-- on Amazon or FREE eBook with Bookshelf Plus
Paul Randall needs to start over, and Crescent Cove looks like the ideal place for the widowed pharmacist to begin again. What could be more perfect than running an old-fashioned pharmacy in an idyllic small town on the coast of northern California?

But soon after purchasing the charming drugstore, Paul discovers it will be anything but business as usual in his new locale. Although Crescent Cove seems prosperous, there is also something about it that feels dangerous — a fact that becomes disturbingly obvious when Paul finds Bria Georgopolis cowering on the side of the freeway. She unveils an eerie truth about a nearby hospital that places corporate profits above the price of human life.

As the pieces of the conspiracy come together, Paul and Bria realize that it's up to them to expose the monstrous evil — before their new beginnings lead to a very dead end.

The Survivors-- on Amazon or FREE eBook with Bookshelf Plus
When the plane went down, David Kirkham's head was a million miles away. The combination of sleeping pills and alcohol left him much more foggy than his usual obsessive and cynical self. However, he did seem to remember there was someone sitting next to him-a young Mormon girl. The last thing he could recall was the panicked sound of her voice.

Surrounded by jungle, the two survivors are forced to walk their battered bodies back to civilization-and their families. However, young Melodee's self-assured, uncomplaining attitude hides a foe that has been fiercely tearing at her innocent life. And with time ticking away, can the pair outmaneuver the desperate men who will stop at nothing to protect a lucrative secret? Can David and Melodee find a safe place within the primordial jungle before evil finds them?

Bloodborne-- on Amazon or FREE eBook / FREE Audiobook (MP3) with Bookshelf Plus
One ordinary afternoon, research specialist Dr. Erin Cross steps into a local deli to get some lunch and nearly takes a bullet instead. Thanks to timely intervention from a former Marine, she walks away from the seemingly freak incident. But when she returns to find her lab under security lockdown and her apartment ransacked, she realizes the attack was anything but random. Erin can’t make sense of the threat, given her low profile after a disastrous H1N1 vaccine trial. She doesn’t know that her former colleague has used the virus to develop a potent bioweapon or that her recent research holds a key to his success. And she doesn’t know that his collaborators want her dead before she blows the whistle.

Fleeing for safety with her research in hand, Erin unravels the threats with help from the timely Marine, former Special Ops agent Sean Flannery. But the closer they come to finding answers, the more questionable Sean’s behavior becomes. His erratic moods and suspicious communications are more fitting for an enemy than a friend. And as the crisis comes to a head, Erin can’t be sure who harbors more secrets—the bioterrorists pursuing her or the one man who can give her protection.

Deadly Undertakings-- on Amazon or FREE eBook / FREE Audiobook (MP3) with Bookshelf Plus

When two identical cases surface, Rebekah enlists the help of her boyfriend, special investigations officer Josh Logan. Together they uncover shocking truths about the bizarre deaths, which eventually lead them to a nightmarish revelation they weren’t prepared for. Yet unknowingly, the more they reveal, the closer they come to being the killer’s next guinea pigs.

Blink of an Eye-- on Amazon or FREE eBook with Bookshelf Plus
Childhood was a happy, carefree time for Joseph Ramirez. At least that’s how he used to remember it. But since the near-fatal traffic accident that landed him in the hospital with brain trauma, he’s not so sure. Along with physical pain, Joseph now suffers recurring nightmares. Each night the heart-wrenching dreams grow increasingly vivid and graphic — to the point that Joseph’s hospital roommate reports that Joseph talks in his sleep, often crying out in anguish and remorse. To complicate matters, a ruthless lawyer is challenging Joseph’s innocence in the traffic accident.

When defense attorney Michelle Haas comes to his aid, they discover they knew each other as children, and soon another forgotten experience comes into play — one that goes deeper than simple friendship. Are Joseph’s night terrors actually repressed memories? Does he speak the truth during his unconscious midnight hours? And if so, what will that mean when Joseph’s hospital roommate claims he confessed to murder? Soon Joseph realizes there’s only one way to uncover the truth about his family and himself — involving reliving a past he has unknowingly worked all his life to forget.
